Old Age - No Pubic Hair???!

OK I know this is a weird question but I just have to ask. I am a big fan of the Brazilian Wax - I have been getting it done since I was 15 (I'm now 22) - I have heard that people lose all of their pubic hair as they age. Is this true does anyone know?

Yes it's common for hair to thin out as we age.
<A HREF="http://www.grg.org/resources/senhealth.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.grg.org/resources/senhealth.htm</A>

"After menopause, estrogen production diminishes. In the absence of sufficient amounts of the hormone, which you can take supplementally, the vulvar region tends to atrophy, with loss of pubic hair and shrinkage of the labia majora. The labia minora can almost disappear."

I meant waxing isn't natural... but losing hair with age certainly is!
